I love this band. Can I start this review this way? Well, I just did. Dangerkids takes every genre I love and mixes them all together until you get an undeniable blend of perfect. Raging a little hip-hop, hardcore screaming with electronic ingredients, this band, this album, really blew my mind. Releasing their second full length album Blacklist, Dangerkids takes you on a personal journey of taking musical risks with unstoppable in your face lyrics. Growing beyond their own abilities, this four piece from Ohio is tearing up the scene with a style all their own. Just when people think the music industry has become stagnant or predictable, here comes Dangerkids, calling bullshit. Doing what they want, their kind of way has led to high praise from publications such as Alternative Press and Kerrang. AP and Kerrang Y’all, you can’t deny it now. Blacklist has a song for every emotion or situation you may have encountered. Written from the heart and soul, each track gets better and better every time I play it. From “Kill Everything” the band tells the tale of rising from the ashes and becoming what everyone said they couldn’t be, to the hit you in the feels “Nothing Worth Saving”.
“Throw me away
cause everything breaks.
We’re someone’s mistakes
and I guess that nothing is changing.
Help, I’m just not myself, I’m caving.
You make me feel like I’m nothing worth saving.”
For me the last song, “Invincible Summer” was my addiction for days after hearing it for the first time. I have always loved acoustic songs, but you must have that x factor to make them memorable, among the many that are written. This song is an eye closer, meaning, it makes you close your eyes and feel every note dig into every emotion you have, pulling memories you thought were deeply buried. Blacklist in my opinion, is one of my Top 10 albums of 2017 so far. Easily in love with Dangerkids, and I’m so pumped to see what they have in store next. Keep your ears and eyes open kiddies, you don’t want to miss anything they will be doing in the future.
